These are words said in appreciation for ceremonies we have conducted ( full references available on request )

...a short note to thank you for conducting such a wonderful service for my dad last Friday.

I had planned on thanking you at the time, but unfortunately my emotions got the better of me & I was unable to speak to you.

Speaking to those friends & family that met after the ceremony, they were also impressed at the way you enthusiastically covered the celebration of dad's life and kept the mood as upbeat as possible.

I know that dad would have wanted it this way.

Once again, many many thanks.
